Why do people want to know how to track a cell phone? There are so many reasons but here are the top 3:
1. For parents to protect and guide their children.
2. For employers to control expenses and employee attendance.
3. For grown-up children who want to monitor their aging parents.
With so much freedom that the society nowadays gives our children, all the more that they really need to be protected and guided. Sometimes teens and kids get into serious problems but refuse to share them with their parents because they are afraid of being punished, embarrassed, or intimidated by bullies or criminals. By tracking their phones, you can find if your child has a problem with drugs, anorexia, bulimia, alcoholism, or unwanted pregnancy. Sometimes the problem comes from an external source, like a bully or a drug dealer that intimidates your son into silence. In any case, you really want to find out and do something about it.
Some problematic employees just really can't be trusted. That's why employers intentionally give phones to their employees for tracking purposes. Of course, the employees were informed beforehand that company phones are being tracked. While the employer expects the employee to use the cell phone for company related purposes, the temptation to make a long distance call to friend or relative and pass it as a client call is big. It is also tempting to call in sick when you’re actually at the ball game or visiting some friends. By knowing how to track a cell phone, the employer would know which employee to keep and which not to.
